His ability to perform has led to a record with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and two records for RCA/BMG with film composer Mark Isham. His appearances include Montreux Jazz Festival sharing the bill with Miles Davis and an improvised radio session with rock legend Stevie Ray Vaughn in 1985. The Nancy Jazz Festival had him solo to follow the Wayne Shorter band and in 2005 he opened the Guinness Jazz Festival in Cork Ireland with his Quinteto Fabuloso.
